I read a lot about spirtual / emotional / sexual, etc abuse on these boards. I think things regarding the religious world take on a whole different level of abuse includeding having to work through programming. It would be nice to see a forum for these issues maybe under the types of abuse section. I'm not meaning to single out one particular faith in any way. I think this is a universal issue as no matter which faith, humans still participate in it. Thanks for considering it. And yes, I saw the sexual assault by clergy, but not all of the religious abuse is sexual assault. Perhaps that specific topic is too narrow to include other abuse of the religious nature?

Ritual abuse might cover what you're looking for.
